The Honors Program at Tougaloo College is designed to accommodate the self-motivated, self-directed, goal oriented, high achieving students who want to enhance their college experience and opportunities in their chosen careers by taking academic courses in a specially designed accelerated program. All incoming students who have been designated Presidential Scholars or who have been ranked in the top 10 percent of their high school class and have a composite ACT score of at least 25 or an SAT score of 1010 or greater are invited to participate.

Enrolled students who have completed 24 semester hours at Tougaloo College with a grade point average of 3.50 or higher may also join the program. Additionally, all honors students will be expected to participate in activities of the Council of Undergraduate Research and work with designated advisors.
